Used in laboratory environments, analytical instrumentation equipment is designed to increase functionality while reducing size to free up precious lab space. Packing more electronics into a tighter footprint increases the heat flux, which leads to thermal challenges. Thermoelectric cooler assemblies offer cooling solutions that enable OEMs to meet thermal challenges with advanced temperature, humidity and moisture control.
Electron microscopes are advanced laboratory tools capturing high-resolution images to reveal texture, shape and contours of biological and inorganic specimens. For maximum image quality, electronic components and samples need to be kept at optimal temperatures.
